Candidate blurb for Blueskin News: Geraldine Tait

Geraldine Tait: Candidate for the Waikouaiti Coast Community Board and the
Waikouaiti Coast-Chalmers Ward of Dunedin City Council.

I am a member of the Waikouaiti Coast Community Board. I am seeking
election as your local councillor. I am committed to meaningful
consultation, transparency and accountability while keeping a firm control
on rates rises. The recent stadium debate is demonstrates poor financial
decision making and a failure to listen to the communities views.
Essential infrastructure should be councils spending priority. A proactive
approach is needed to the challenges of energy depletion, environmental
protection and climate change. Dunedin should be a leader in sustainable
development.
Council needs a broader cross section of people with energy and integrity.
I have demonstrated my ability to work with and for this community on a
variety of issues such as; water, road safety, appropriate development and
civil defence.
I am a member of Greater Dunedin, an alliance of independent candidates
dedicated to working as a team to achieve a positive future for our city.
